October 15 2014 Monthly Meeting

ARBORICULTURE - FOR THE HOME GARDENER

Our guest this month is Ken Hutz, Arborist for the Barton Arboretum and Nature Preserve of Medford Leas


Golden Rain Tree - Medford Leas

Ken will share with our members how trees and shrubs of all kinds can beautify the garden and also provide seasonal interest while also buffering noise pollution.
Trees and plants can provide shade, can prevent erosion, as well as frame views and screen eyesores in the landscape. Attractive trees and well designed gardens can increase property value.
Ken will discuss the benefits of maintaining healthy and well pruned trees and shrubs as well as fertilization, disease treatments and IPM-based treatments for the garden.
Come on out and bring your questions about your favorite trees and/or bring photos of damage or disease on your trees and large shrubs to share with Ken.

WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU HAD A TETANUS BOOSTER?

A Tetanus Booster should be scheduled preferably every 5 years or at the most every 10 years.
While working in the soil you can contract a bacteria and the symptoms can be quite painful.
So, schedule yourself for a booster and be safe
!
